Medical Marijuana and Exhaustion
Do you always feel tired? Do you find it hard to get through regular day to day chores? We all get tired when we have a cold, viral infection, or flu. But, when you feel a lack of energy all the time, you could be suffering from exhaustion and it may be time to make an appointment with your doctor. If you have tried everything from yoga to meditation, to strolls in the park, but have found no relief from extreme tiredness, it is time you tried medical cannabis. Read on to know more about exhaustion, its many symptoms and how medical marijuana can help treat exhaustion.
Fatigue or exhaustion is a lingering tiredness that is constant as well as limiting. When you have unexplained, persistent and relapsing exhaustion, you may be suffering from chronic fatigue. Often people who suffer from fatigue wake up in the morning as though they haven’t slept. Even getting through the day may become a chore in itself. You will struggle to function at work or even be productive at home. Managing your daily affairs can turn into an arduous task.
Symptoms of Exhaustion
Fatigue can cause a number of physical, mental and emotional symptoms such as:
- Chronic tiredness or sleepiness
- Muscle weakness
- Impaired decision-making and judgment
- Sore or aching muscles
- Slowed reflexes
- Impaired hand-to-eye coordination
- Reduced immune system function
- Short-term memory problems
- No restful sleep
- Poor concentration
- Blurry vision
- Low motivation.
- Loss of appetite
- Inability to pay attention to the situation at hand
What Else It Could Be
In most cases, there is an underlying reason for exhaustion or fatigue. You may be suffering from anemia, fibromyalgia, allergic rhinitis, hay fever or even depression. In some cases, heart disease could be the reason behind fatigue. It is therefore prudent that you do not overlook or neglect persistent exhaustion and have yourself checked by a medical physician who can diagnose the underlying cause.
How Medical Marijuana Helps Treat Exhaustion
Marijuana is said to contain several hundred compounds that have medicinal properties. The most abundant components in marijuana – THC and CBD are said to help those who are chronically fatigued by infusing immediate energy or by helping persons suffering from exhaustion regain energy through rest and relaxation.
According to medical experts, malfunction or exhaustion of the mitochondrial cells is often the reason behind fatigue. When these cells do not function as they should, insufficient energy is generated which can wreak havoc on a person both psychologically and physiologically. Studies have proven that cannabis can dramatically improve mitochondrial function, by aiding in the production of ATP. When you consume marijuana, cannabinoid receptors in the body are activated, and they help alter the mitochondrial parameters and thereby restore it to normalcy.
Why Medical Marijuana Treats Exhaustion Better Than Other Treatments
There is no one particular cure or medication to treat exhaustion. And, the medication that may be prescribed to you is bound to show little to no results. Prescription drugs can also cause a host of unwanted side effects, and this is why marijuana is a better bet to treat exhaustion. Marijuana has far fewer side effects and can help treat exhaustion effectively. Some strains may combat exhaustion better than others. These strains not only help in reducing exhaustion, but also elevates moods, treats stress, and combats with aches and pains that are associated with fatigue.
